My rather shiny Cervelo S3 frame-set has arrived. Stunning stuff and much better looking in the flesh. I was worried that it looked a little lifeless in pictures, but in 'real life' its a head turner. Have a box full of SRAM RED bits to fit to it and some nice 50mm wheels coming off the FP3 and she's ready to go. Keep you posted, but finally got my no.1 bike. Big birthday gift to myself as a reward. Have shaved off two stone since first week of Feb and on target for my 13 stone goal! Life as they say is good at the moment. I cannot wait to hammer out a solid 60 miles on this....keep you posted.

    Few things stir my heart like a big pile of boxed bike bits waiting to be built up.....

    Great frame. Jealous.

    I want to be looking at a similar red box soon. Tempted by their new inbetween cogs on the front, somewhere above a compact and below a double.

    I would rather have your pinarello.

    I'm sure I've seen that bike in the flesh (Pinarello), few weeks back at Evans cycles when I was buying some inner tubes. Can't be too many of them around. Is it for sale bristolpete?!

    I hear that the cervelo s3 has a lot of problems with the carbon cracking which makes them worthless. So il do you a cracking deal and give you £50 for it :wink:
